Sitemap, the file that contains the data of all the posts, pages, images, videos etc. of your website. This file itself is called Sitemap. Through Sitemap, you tell Google's Crawler what is the content of your website? Due to which Google's Spiders can easily navigate the content of your website.
There are many bloggers who feel that Sitemap is not important for their website. But let me make it clear to you that it is not like this at all, if you want to rank your website on top, then definitely make a sitemap.
The thing to note is that Sitemap never stops crawlers of Google from crawling or if there is no Sitemap on your website then your website will not rank. There is nothing like this, Sitemaps help you a lot in SEO of your website.
A sitemap is a structure having an index with all links and related links like:
The links are structured as a tree with roots splitting into different categories/tags and further in posts. This way we can let know search engines how our site posts/pages are ordered. Sitemap helps search engines to index our posts/pages.
